Webinar: General Election 2017 – What happens now?

Two months ago, the election result seemed a foregone conclusion, with the Conservative Party set to make significant gains and return a large majority in the House of Commons.

The UK political landscape now looks radically different, as Theresa May battles to conclude ongoing discussions with the Democratic Unionist Party in a bid to cling on to Number 10.

The question is: what happens next?

Join us exactly one year on from the Brexit referendum on 23 June at 10:30am for an Accountancy Age webinar in which we discuss what it all means for the accountancy industry.

Our panel of experts will explore the key issues, from Making Tax Digital to Brexit to corporation tax, pensions, income tax reform and more.

Join the discussion to hear our panellists’ predictions, expectations and concerns for the coming weeks, months, and beyond.

Register here.
